Making a thorough checklist, downsizing, and packing the essentials yourself are just three of the things you need to do when preparing for a full-service move out of Philly, says Movers.com.
2022 has seen Philadelphia’s largest single-year decline since 1975 - with the trend driven by more and more urban dwellers looking to move away from big city life in the first year after the pandemic.
And while hiring full-service movers is the option requiring the least amount of work on the part of the homeowner, there are still some essential things to keep in mind, explains Movers.com.
Full-service moving, where all aspects of packing and transporting are handled by professionals, is the easiest way to move to your new home with as close to zero effort on your part as possible.
You'll still have to take care of a few things, though.
Here are the most important ones (check out the full Movers.com guide for more):
“Paying for packing services can grow costly if you have a large volume of belongings," explains the guide. "Before moving day, plan to sift through your possessions and decide what you don't want to bring with you to your new home. Donate unwanted items to charity, have a yard sale or sell nearly-new or unused belongings online. You will cut your moving costs considerably by eliminating excess junk that will be uselessly collecting dust at your new home.”
